Optimizing the File System Performance

NetWare® provides several methods for improving the performance of your file system. For a list of general guidelines for conserving disk space and improving disk performance, see Optimizing Storage Disk Capacity .

To improve disk reads and writes, see Improving Disk Reads and Improving Disk Writes . You can also increase the speed of disk reads and writes by striping volume segments across multiple disks.

For more information about RAID, see Stripe Data Across Storage Devices (RAID) in the Novell Storage Services Administration Guide.
